In 2010, Schulzentrum Marienhöhe has been certified as a “Health-promoting School” by the Minister of Education in Hessen. This certificate was renewed in 2015. It includes four subject-related certificates in the areas “Nutrition”, “Exercise”, “Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention” and “Environmental/Ecological Education”.
School for climate protection
In May, 2010, our principal signed the Charter for Climate Protection in Hessen. It is a commitment to measure our own carbon dioxide emissions and reduce them by 10 % within a year. Climate protection is also a topic in the school program and classroom lectures.
In November, 2010, students and teachers established the “Energy Agency Marienhöhe”, a student enterprise that plans and implements energy saving projects for the school.
